Poured from a 650ml bottle, no dating. Clear dark orange body with two fingers of bubbly white head. Lots of lacing.
Tons of grapefruit, pine, lemon, orange peel and citrus notes on the aroma. Some sort of "dank" hoppy note too.
Citrus and grapefruit flavor on the tongue and forwards into big hop bitterness with some lemon and orange peel notes. Juicy hop flavor. Leaves a dry, very bitter, hoppy aftertaste.
Medium body, smooth and quaffable. Nice amount of carbonation to go along with the body and flavor.
Nice IPA from Central City.

I got this in Philadelphia and the can reads as "Red Betty."
The beer comes in a dark rich amber, almost ruby color with a fluffy white head.
The aroma has grapefruit, a bit of caramel malt, and tons of pine, some spiciness. A very clean hoppiness. Very deep dank pine in there and a bit of alcohol in the end.
The flavor starts of some caramel malt. Then there is just lots of grapefruit, dank pine, huge flavor, lots of lasting bitterness. A hop juiciness that keeps the beer clean and not too cloying bitter. This beer is very in your face with the pine and long bitterness.
I had this next to Bell's Two Hearted and preferred this. This is just a fantastic IPA. It packs tons of flavor and also has a good balance of hops and malt. For pine bombs, like Green Flash West Coast, this is where I think it is at. Just a world class IPA.
I had this blind next to Meadowlark IPA and Ithaca Flower Power. This one out with Flower Power in second.
